Teen movies have the potential to be really great or ridiculously awful. The fact is, the outrageous things that happen in high school are hard to manufacture in a way that is enjoyable to watch. I mean, it's not that fun to live it, so why would we want to watch it? Because in movies, Freddie Prinze Jr. is there and that's really all it takes.

A teen movie in the 90s and early 2000s wasn't complete without Freddie Prinze Jr.. There was however, one movie that he made that became the epitome of teen movies. She's All That was an absolutely iconic film that seemed to embrace all the stereotypical teen tropes that go along with these movies but they did it better than anyone.

The star of this movie was Rachael Leigh Cook. She played the dorky loner girl who was into art. She worse glasses and overalls and apparently that was enough to make her the biggest dork in school.

We all remember the plot right? Zack (Freddie Prinze Jr.) has a bet with Dean (Paul Walker) to see if he can turn any girl into prom queen. They end up picking Laney (Rachael Leigh Cook) as the subject of their experiment but over time Zack develops feelings for her. She gets a makeover before some Six Pence None The Richer plays and the everything goes exactly as you'd expect.

Rachael Leigh Cook was already pretty popular before She's All That because she played Mary Ann in The Babysitters Club. After she had her big staircase reveal in the movie, she instantly became the new "it girl".

She spoke with Today about the process of making the movie and she had some extremely sweet things to say about her costars, including the unlikely moments that stick with her.
